voters have no idea what you're talk about. >> the number in the times front page story about the deficit and, you know, the fourth straight year of trillion plus deficit, these are things that concern -- >> the american voters. >> and a number that resonates. talk about trillion dollar deficits an every normal person is going to go what are we doing. >> let's be clear about that ad. the ad is a strong ad, but generally candidates do straight to camera ads when they feel like they're in trouble. president obama did his one and only after the welfare ads started to hurt him, you didn't build that, he went straight to camera. romney's ad is a response to the 47% and what that's doing to him in places including ohio and to go back to curt's point about why romney is personally beyond the economic numbers, the president has had a problem with white working-class vote es for a long time. worse in the south than in the industrial midwest but still there in the industrial midwest. mitt romney is almost like -- almost the jerry built to be the worst possible candidate to talk to white working-cla
of initiatives to educate voters on issues in the election. the debt and deficit exceed $16 trillion. his article will appear tomorrow in usa today. we will show you an excerpt in just a moment. first some context to ross perot. when he ran as a third-party, he talked about the growing debt. \ [video clip] >> the world of a unlamented opportunity. what what they say to us if they knew by the year 2000 we will have left them with a national debt of $8 trillion? what would they say if they knew we make them the first generation of americans with a standard of living below the generation below them? we cannot do this to our children. in this election we have the opportunity to choose a candidate not a career politician, but a proven business leader with the ability to take on the tasks at hand. to balance the budget, to expand the tax base, to give our children back the american dream. the candidate is ross perot. the issue is our children. the choice is yours. host: from 1992 when he ran his first of two independent bids for the white house, falling short in 1992 and 1996. one viewer says we need t
on the short term. he would have also focused on the structural. our problem isot the correct deficits and debt. although they are shockingly high. the problem is what is not on the balance sheet. as a businessman, he understands that is the real problem. you have to solve that problem as well. in addition, ross perot has an incredible ability to communicate and no hesitancy to go directly to the american people. that is what we need from our president. who ever our president is. we have to rally the public of around the fact that we have no choice but to make these tough races. we are going to solve this problem. are we going to solve it prudently and preemptively or for the market forces us to or will we wait for the market to force us which will be a global depression, drop tax increases. is that what we are going to do? it is all about leadership. >> the risk of some asian taking us over -- some nation -- the risk of some nations taking us over should be in people's minds here >> you are an equal opportunity critic of both parties. you -- are you aligning yourself one way or another or supp
'm sure you didn't miss it. 15-point deficit for mitt romney. i'm guessing you'll argue with some parts. >> i'm not going to argue with it at all. do you really believe it's right? let me test your political wisdom. do you think it's possible for that to be right? you know it's a piece of garb e garbage? >> this is a good pollster, but you can argue that it's not 15%. do you believe mitt romney is behind in new hampshire? >> no, i believe it's head to head in new hampshire. and i've seen enough other polls to tell you that is a piece of garbage. this race in new hampshire will be won by mitt romney by two to three points. i'm willing to say that publically and stick by it and i know that it that poll of 15 points is absolutely invalid. >> every sort of professional poll i have seen of campaigns, though, all seem to have barack obama ahead and the big issue in new hampshire has been the gender gap with moderate women who may be the republicans fiscally but uncomfortable on social issues. you have had to navigate that before. that's always an issue for new hampshire republicans. how does
up, it's too risky to cut taxes and blow another hole in the deficit and then hope that economic growth will somehow fill that hole later on. >> well, i think what andrea, what most people have seen is over the last fou years the economy hasn't grown. we haven't seen the job growth we need, we haven't seen the type of -- and we've seen trillions of dollars in deficits from this president. so governor romney put out early on in this campaign put out a 59-point plan a comprehensive plan to put america back to work. i think tonight's going to be another opportunity to talk about a number of these issue silos important to americans when they look at essentially all the cost pressures they have in their household. first is the tax reform. fundamental tax reform across the board which is going to help americans put more money in their pockets for those middle class americans that do a lot of the spending in this country and i think they need it the most. >> will governor romney explain? >> on issues like health care, those are also issues that the governor will address comprehensively
the president not spending enough in outer space. this is mr. the deficit is coming to eat your grandchildren, but that's okay. because we should still be going to the moon to keep the chinese from being space station there. they are going to build a toy store there. and mitt romney is going to send all the work there. he is a remarkable guy, he is very capable of sending your job to china and making his money. >> stephanie: yeah exactly. love your headlines, scott brown will not be bullied by a girl from harvard. the only clips i saw was him bringing up her heritage over and over again. >> i think he's making a little bit of headway -- you know making her explain what she did for asbestos companies. it helped the asbestos workers, but you have to understand bankruptcy law to understand how it did that and you can't make a commercial out of that. the whole you make $350,000 to teach one course -- well he has been to law school. he knows how law schoolworks. >> stephanie: exactly. >> that line of attack is completely dissident from the line he sold to the country for three year
trade action. we went from a billion-dollar trade deficit to $10 billion over the last ten years. that's a lot of job loss and a lot of jobs we could start to regain with with we enforce the rules that china clearly is cheating. they subsidize capital and energy and land and water. they don't play fair on currency. we stand up to them, it means good jobs and it will create a middle class in ohio. >> in your own campaign in ohio, as i mentioned in the introduction, you've raised money for your own campaign. your opponent has raised not sis similar amounts. the big difference is outside money that's coming in on his behalf. you're being outspent 4 to 1 when you look at the numbers. why are these groups from outside your state so interested in seeing you lose, a, and b, why do it in ohio when there's a premium on ad dollars because the presidential campaign is spending money? >> their money may be unlimited. and they are going after me because it's dark money. we don't know for sure who it is. we think it's the oil industry because of my efforts to take on the oil companies and the subsid
to get reelected, he faces a deficit among women voters of about 12 points. interestingly though, the most politically damaging thing about that awkward introduction to the national political universe might not have been what mr. brown said about his daughters while they tried to make him stop, but what happened right before that. >> scott brown's victory is a shot heard around the world. here he is, the united states senator from massachusetts, scott brown. >> the man who introduced scott brown at his victory party was his dear friend and political ally mitt romney. these days if you went by massachusetts politics, if you only had massachusetts media fed into your home, you'd have no idea that the same guy was running for president. today was the second debate between scott brown and elizabeth warren. two things you'll remember in the first debate. the first the vee mans he attacked elizabeth warren on the basis of race in the first debate saying he could tell by looking at the law professor that she wasn't really native american. that was followed up by two scott brown tv ads a
anything to bring down the deficit. but attacks at character assassination make it a lot harder to solve problems, to compromise to sit down and get something done. >> coming from the face of republican obstructionism, how do you respond to that, quickly. >> well, it's an incomprehensible jumble of words. i was presenting facts and he doesn't like the facts. maybe he can't take the truth.
and debt and deficit and vote. i am a reliable vote for the bill. >> theme of the evening, independence good, partisanship bad. >> vote about 50% with my party and 50% with the democratic party and that's a lot different than what professor warren would do to be in lock step. >> when senator brown talks here in massachusetts about how very bipartisan he is and end pent he is he's not saying the same thing when he goes around the country raising money in this senate campaign. >> aliens watching the debate could be forgiven for voting in lock step is a criminal offense. warren accused brown of consistently voting with republican leadership to block jobs bills put forward by the president while brown said compromise was a foreign concept to the ultraliberal warren. with all political events this evening not without its gaffes. >> can you name some republicans in the senate today that you are able to work with on big, substantive issues that the country face this is. >> probably richard lugar would come to mind. >> he's not going to be there. >> who else could you name, senator? >> that is

providing cures for debilitating diseases. that's not a recipe for growth and we can reduce our deficit, including making some smart decisions on medicare in particular, where we're focused on lowering health care costs by reforming how health care is delivered but we don't need to be voucherizing the system to dump those costs on to seniors because, frankly, they can't afford it right now. >> pelley: there is a lot of rhetoric about medicare. what do you intend to do? >> well, i don't want any change to medicare for current seniors or for those that are nearing retirement. so the plan stays exactly same. >> pelley: make sure i understand. the idea under your plan for future seniors would be that the federal government would write that senior a check, essentially and say "now, you can go buy a private insurance plan or you can buy medicare from the federal government"? >> s that essentially it? >> that's essentially it. people would have a choice of either traditional government-run fee-for-service medicare or a private plan which has to offer the same benefits. it can't be skinnyed dow
is romney talking about the deficits, debt and deficit given that we have the employment crisis and much of the reason is the new look at the states they thought of as a target of violent hampshire this is just an issue that resume sit it is almost a kind of psychic quality that resonates and i think that that is one thing to keep in mind and you have these kind of strands that do not always come here and a way that works for you if you are a candidate so that is wanting to keep in mind. it's interesting to think about when you have this kind of stagnation for the high end but a broad swath of the electorate. what does it mean. one thing it means is this not enrollment in the last two or three years to get medicaid. when bill clinton gave a talk at the democratic national convention to was incredibly shrewd because he didn't talk about medicare they talk about medicare it's a real wedge into the numbers between the two campaigns. a really is medicaid and it's a lot of white working-class folks as well as the underrepresented minority backgrounds as well. so, i think that when you think a
that people feel is missing. >> eric: where is the proof? you say you arut canning the deficit and create four million jobs. give us ideas. we haven't heard them. >> steve: head line is that the president is lying in his ads. he said they don't hold the president accountable in the main stream med yampt -- media . rasmussen shows how many people are for the president and how many for mr. mitt romney . rasmussen poll was accurate in 2004 and 8 getting the results according to the track being poll. 43 percent said they are certain to vote for romney and 42 percent certain vote for obama and 15 percent haven't decided . >> gretchen: that's huge. that is a dead heat report to look at the certainty of these people they are voting early right and these people who know in the debates who they will vote for. these debates are for the undecided it is a huge chunk of the population. other than voters turn out of the base. that will turn the election>> eric: that is 10-20 percent of the undisguisable and persuadable. throw that poll up one more second. in the bottom of that. likely voters. those are the
is from higher income households. >> $1.3 trillion deficit you definitely need something to bring that deficit down. bring the national debt down at some point down the road. once there is a balanced budget. who knows when that would be. most people assume nothing is going to happen as far as the fiscal cliff is concerned between now and november 6. but afterwards in that lame duck session between november 6 and december 31, something will happen. are you among those who will agree -- agree that the fiscal cliff will be avoided? >> yes. i think it will be avoided. i mean, you know, depends on the election. you know. if governor romney wins it is likely -- would kick the can into next year. leave everything the same for a few months. let -- the new president come into office and get it together. probably in the spring. president obama wins the election, then right after the election, lame duck, the clock will start ticking and he will be under a lot of pressure to do something. let me say one other thing. you know, i think the most likely scenario is that we are actually going to h

without raising the deficit. while even conservative economists cannot make those numbers add up. martin feld stein of the national bureau for economic research finds romney's new tax rates would cost trillions of dollars. closing tax loopholes will not pay for that. he would need to get rid of middle class deductions which then effectively raises middle class rates. that study confirms a finding from the tax policy center earlier this year. another new study is finding women are making less than men in 97% of congressional districts. that comes from the national partnership for women and families and it means there are only 13 districts in this entire country where women and men are being paid equally. some of the nation's worst districts for women's pay come from louisiana and virginia where women are making just more than 60 cents for every dollar a man earns. more bill press coming up live after the break. stay with us. we have a big, big hour and the i.q. will go way up. how are you ever going to solve the proble
stimulus in your economy. and if you can't get back to growth, then the deficits will get worse and not better. and this is the cycle of decline that europe is facing. >> mark halperin. >> prime minister, i take your point about the medium and longer-term issue. how important from a practical and psychological point of view is it to europe for america to have an election and then move to get our fiscal house in order? >> i think it's going to be important that europe and america cooperate to get the world economy moving forward. that's the most important thing. you see, i don't understand, since the rescue of the world economy in 2009, there is virtually no cooperation between america, china, india, europe to get the world economy moving forward. you, america, need to export to the rest of the world. you can't stimulate your economy simply by domestic consumption or public spending or public investment. you need to sell to the rest of the world. china needs to grow, and it needs to sell to europe and america. that's the blasz of a global growth agreement. china concerns more. yo
, look, we've had trillion-dollar deficits. every single year, he's added $5 trillion to the national debt. you've had all the bailouts. you've had so many things that mitt romney could run on, and he hasn't been able to do it. willie, that is the ongoing frustration that this man has been given more material than any republican nominee since ronald reagan in 1980, and he can't seem to connect the dots and explain why a conservative economic world view should be used to turn this economy around. it is a daily frustration for conservatives. >> and daniel hopes mr. romney will take up this point at the debate six days from now. steve, let's inside these numbers. you've got some charts explaining president obama's recent surge in the polls. >> yes, because while i agree with a lot of what joe said, there are some substantive reasons why president obama should be doing better at the moment. they don't get as much attention. so let's talk a little about it. first, nobody is happy with the state of the economy at the moment. 2% growth with 8% unemployment. but as we've talked about on this
failure failures, the failure to create jobs or bring down the deficit. >> kevin, i want to get to some smalls we have on latino likely voters, but i want to quickly ask you, why did governor romney wait to this point to bring this forward on immigration policy? >> well, kate, we've had a lot of discussions on this issue. i think this was an opportunity where a question was asked, specifically on that question, and the governor answered it. he did talk in expansive terms about immigration, what he would do to modernize the immigration system, how it's an important part of our economy. during his recent interview that he had with univision. and i think it will continue to be a part of this debate. >> kevin, i want to show you, we put up on our screen for our viewers some new polling we have out today, showing that president obama really has an overwhelming lead among likely latino voters. 70 to 26 for governor romney. are now aggressively courting the latino vote, are you expecting to get anywhere near or beyond what senator mccain got back in 2008, which was 31%? >> well, kate, thank yo
